Job description

At Rise8, we’re in the business of inspiring culture by enabling clients to ruthlessly prioritize end-user value to build, test, and deliver regularly, consistently, and quickly as possible.

You will analyze and assess vulnerabilities across the tech stack (network, infra, platform, apps), investigate available tools and countermeasures to remedy the detected vulnerabilities, and recommend solutions and best practices. You will also automate tests for compliance with security policies and procedures. You will work with leading commercial clouds as well as secure k8s platforms like D2IQ, Tanzu, Rancher, etc. You may also provide expertise for secure management of the stack: monitoring, incident response, disaster recovery, security compliance/auditing, networking, storage, and service brokers.

We practice and teach an approach to information security that applies across industries and organizations, so you’ll experience all types of teams, products, and technologies.
